Love for Hanson
Jul 14th, 2012 by niceyfemme

Last March, one of my teenage dreams finally came true. I got to meet Hanson (Taylor specially) in person! I even got shake their hands. Haha I know pathetic for those who aren’t fans but for fellow fans they would totally get me and how I must be feeling then. I dreamt about that moment for 15 years! Wow.

One thing that came back together with my love for them is the love for their music. Read the rest of this entry »

Proud to be a Hanson Fan!
Jan 21st, 2012 by niceyfemme

And has been for the last 15 years.

A 12 year old 6th grader I was. Fell in love with these girly looking boys (blame their long hair) but really it is their music that swept me off of my feet but it doesn’t hurt that they’re so good looking and charming and funny.

(Just some of my Hanson stuff as some are stored in a very big box as I need more space in my room.)

I remember to always buy their cd’s in multiple numbers to have myself some back up if ever something happens to the first one I’m using, their albums are that important to me. I cannot even imagine myself not listening to their Middle of Nowhere cd. It is always in my Sony discman and I wouldn’t leave home without it. I listen to their beautiful voice from the moment I wake up and just before I sleep. MTV was always on because their video might come up and I’d go crazy if I miss it. Just seeing them made me giddy with happiness.

Obsessing over them didn’t stop there. I even bought those imported magazines especially if they’re in the cover spending 6th grader allowance on them. And they’re not cheap! One magazine cost Php 300! And sometimes even more expensive and that was on year 1997-1998. But I didn’t mind as  I loved reading anything about them. I know their favorite food, hobbies and so on. That made me feel like I knew them personally and somehow there’s a connection between us even though in reality they might not be sure that they have a Filipino fan as crazy as I was back then.

The walls of my rooms was full of their posters. My whole clan knows how crazy I was for them and they gave me gifts Hanson related. Oh and I even joined a Channel V contest that would bring the winner to Hong Kong to watch their concert and meet them. Man, I sent too many entries. I didn’t win the grand prize but they sent me some Hanson thingies including their cd. I love that point in my life, I was floating, high with Hanson. ♥

Of course life brings sadness as well. Their music helped me go through it. When no one understood, they did, through their music. There was a time in my life when I can’t fit in, ‘Weird’ was the song of my life then. Then ‘I Will Come To you’ was next.

Then year 2003 came. I was in the school’s library/internet area. I read that Taylor got married. That crushed me. Tears fell down my cheeks and I was unconscious about it. It was only when my friend asked why I was crying that brought me back to reality.

Then year 2004 Hanson finally came to the Philippines for a concert, the event I was waiting for since 1997. BUT I wasn’t able to go. That really got to me and years has passed I still have that regret of not seeing Taylor in person. I wondered if they’re ever going back. Then last November I read that they’re coming here!!! I was so happy and started to talk about it in Facebook. BUT. I still wasn’t sure if I can come. My predicament then was that March is way too far ahead for me to be sure that I am in the Philippines by then. So I didn’t buy then. Come January, and after thinking about it a lot of times, I gave in. I’d make a way to be here by March. I NEED TO SEE TAYLOR IN PERSON. That’s my lifelong dream haha. Really. I have wished for that to happen so many times before and now there’s this chance of it happening and I won’t let it pass me again.

I finally have my ticket! Yey! Taylor, Ike and Zac I’ll be seeing you! Can’t wait for March.

Lastly, I would LOVE to meet them in person (as in in a meet and greet kind of thing) but I think I’d freeze and I don’t want to make myself look stupid in front of them. So nah!

Now everyone who call themselves Hanson fans need to show support by going to their concert and not just blab about being one and not do anything. Come and enjoy with fellow Hanson fans. Let’s enjoy their music together. Who knows when they’re coming back here so don’t let the chance pass you by. Buy your tickets now. 🙂

 

 

 

 

Earth, Wind and Fire Live!
Nov 30th, 2009 by niceyfemme

I wanna go to their concert in the Philippines on 5 December 2009!

I love their song Every Now and Then…… I don’t know why but I love singing along to this…. Feeling sentimental for unknown reasons…..

I remember I always thought it would be great to watch them sing this song live…. I always figured it will in Araneta Coliseum and ticket price will be Php5000 for the bests seats.

I plan to get the cheapest seat if ever hehehe….. My goal is to just listen to them sing this song live, in person.

BUT. BIG BUT.

Sooo expensive! 🙁

“THE ORIGINAL”
EARTH WIND and FIRE

LIVE IN MANILA

Presented by
Offshore Entertainment Production Pte Ltd
Lifestyle 7

Nothing beats the original as often stated. With that consideration, Filipino music fans are in for a big treat come next month as the real people behind the legendary Earth, Wind & Fire comes to Manila for a live show that is sure to be no less than spectacular.

The one-night affair strikingly titled The Original Earth, Wind & Fire Live In Manila happens on December 5, 8 pm at the Philippine International Convention Center (PICC) Reception Hall in Pasay City. Organizers of the highly anticipated concert uses the operative word `original` to essentially address that bit of confusion among EWF fans who were introduced to a separate act carrying the music and name of the group but not the real faces behind it.

Produced by Offshore Entertainment Production, the upcoming live extravaganza promises to offer the definitive repertoire and performance of a group who `single-handedly introduced sophisticated funk and African folk rhythms to American popular culture.`

Arguably the world`s best show band ever, EWF is best known for their hits Reasons, Fantasy, September, Sing A Song, Boogie Wonderland, After the Love Has Gone, and Let`s Groove. These hits, among others, have become favorite covers for performers, given their generally danceable grooves and high-recall melodies.

EWF is an African-American R&B band formed in Chicago in 1969 by Marurice White, a member of then Ramsey Lewis Trio. His tenor voice that contrasts the falsetto of Philip Bailey is said to be the key interplay that gave the group`s its distinct sound. Bailey did a duet with Phil Collins for the latter`s hit Easy Lover.

In the early 70s, other original members of the group include singer Sherry Scott, percussionist Yackov Ben Israel, White`s brother Verdine, Donny Hathaway, guitarist Michael Beale, Chester Washington, trumpet player Leslie Drayton, trombonist Alex Thomas, and White`s longtime musicmate Wade Flemons. White took the name based on his astrological sign Sagittarius having a primary elemental quality of Fire and seasonal qualities of Earth and Air.

EWF won ten Grammy Awards and four American Music Awards. The group had been inducted into both the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and the Vocal Group Hall of Fame, having sold over 90 million albums worldwide. The staggering sales easily pull them up to rank as the “seventh best selling American band of all time.”

Ticket Prices:

PhP 8,240.00 Reserved Seating
PhP 6,180.00 Patron (Standing only) Less 20% off! (Effective November 25, 2009)
PhP 2,575.00 Standing only

Hmmmmn……. I think it’s just too expensive for what I want. I just want to hear one song to be sang live. Hmmn… It’s in PICC by the way..

What to do???
